Spooky!

High Sparrow From Game Of Thrones Looks Exactly Like Pope Francis.
Have you ever seen High Sparrow and Pope Francis in the same room? Neither do we! This is because they're probably the same person. And if this looks strange to you, wait till you see these animals that totally look like celebrities.

Sadly ironic!
 
More data about the expense of poverty.

" When Orhun and Palazzolo compared households with similar consumption rates shopping at comparable stores — and controlling for two-ply TP — they found that the poor were less likely than wealthier households to buy bigger packages, or to time their purchases to take advantage of sales. By failing to do so, they paid about 5.9 percent more per sheet of toilet paper — a little less than what they saved by buying cheaper brands in the first place (8.8 percent).

Perhaps this sounds like a subtle discovery about minor household goods. But it supports a larger point about poverty: It's expensive to be poor. Or, to state the same from another angle: Having more money gives people the luxury of paying less for things. "
The world is full of opportunities to save money — if you just have enough money to access them.

Amazeballs! Isn't evolving technology amazing? Im glad Google did mention that they didn't reinvent the wheel but rather use other technologies to create better ones.

Something I did not know: at the Statue of Liberty's feet are broken chains, and in the original design of the statue, she did not hold a book in her left hand, but rather the chains she had shattered.

Edouard de Laboulaye and Frédéric Batholdi, the two men behind the statue, were fervent abolitionists, and the initial impetus for the statue was the ratification of the 13th Amendment.

The final design of the statue, in which the chains are visible only from a helicopter, was the result of strong objections from the project's American backers, upon whom de Laboulaye and Batholdi were relying to fund the pedestal and the site; they wanted no mentions of slavery. In 1885-6, the United States was fully in the throes of "reconciliation," the process of the official forgetting of pre-War history, the rehabilitation of the political image of the South, and the formalization of the "New Slavery" system in both North and South which was to prove so immensely profitable. Such a public decree of slavery as an evil, and the antithesis of liberty, would have been an entirely unwanted political problem to those who wanted the country to "just get over it."

The chains remained virtually unknown until recently, with even the National Park Service not mentioning their existence in its publications. Ordinary tourists never saw them; thanks to the steep angle of the plinth, they're completely invisible from the ground. It was only in 2011 that (for reasons not fully clear) this changed, and the USNPS now discusses this history at length on its site.

Via +Ralf Haring and +Peter da Silva.
Sharon Kyle: The story behind the creation of the Statue of Liberty was suppressed for more than 125 years. Finally, the National Park Service includes literature that explains the shackles and chains.

Reminder for people watching the Democratic primaries with bated breath: These aren't winner-take-all votes like in the general election. They use various kinds of proportional representation, so the difference in the number of delegates you get if you win by a hair or lose by a hair is actually pretty small.

This is true even though the press keeps talking about who "won" various states. There is no overtime in the primaries; states can end in a tie. Like Kentucky just did. Honest press coverage would instead say that a particular candidate picked up so many delegates; in a two-way race, you could just report the net number one person gained. (e.g., "Clinton picked up 31 delegates in New York," or "Sanders picked up 21 delegates in Utah")

As of tonight, the score is Clinton by 279, after Sanders picked up 4 in Oregon and both tied in Kentucky. There are 781 ordinary delegates still in play, of which 601 are in two states. (California and New Jersey) Superdelegates are technically not locked until the convention, so aren't counted above, but all signs indicate Clinton up 484 in those, with 148 more still undeclared. You can see the full scoreboard at http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/democratic_delegate_count.html .

Of all the things to be annoyed about in this Presidential race, I realize this is a minor one, but seriously, if you're going to cheer from the sidelines, at least learn the basic rules of the game.

I love this dentistry place! Dr. Joey and his staff are incredible and have done a terrific job making my daughter feel great during her visits to the dentist. They sing the ABCs when they clean her teeth, give her awards, etc and more importantly they keep her teeth in check and clean! Highly recommend it.
